Boston will close out 2017 with a grim truth: More people were killed in the city this year than last year, which in turn was more than the year before.

Wednesday night in Dorchester, residents held a "healing walk" to remember those lost over the year.

Jennifer Smith, news editor at The Dorchester Reporter, has been reporting on the city homicide data and was at the march Wednesday. She joined Morning Edition to talk about it.

This segment aired on December 28, 2017.
